The Group of 5+

What is the Group of 5+ ?

Group of 5+ is a collective of five professional independent English-language theatre companies seeking to share a creative and administrative space to establish a sustainable arts ecosystem. The Group of 5+ aims provide its members with a permanent and viable infrastructure-a physical space-where members can share resources, create and build community.

Who is in the Group of 5+ ?

The five dynamic theatre companies in the Group of 5+ are:

  1. Imago Theatre;

  2. Dulcinée Langfelder & Cie;

  3. Playwrights’ Workshop Montreal;

  4. Geordie Productions;

  5. Talisman Theatre.

What guides the Group of 5+ ?

We believe a shared space and the resulting collective ecosystem will expand the boundaries of theatrical creation.

The vision for Group of 5+ is to sustain the development and presence of professional English-language theatre in the Québec and Montreal arts landscape. The collective would galvanize exchange and the sharing of resources for its members- both past and present-with an aim to strengthen the English-language minority community and expand upon the scope, inclusivity and vibrancy of Québecois theatre.

The Group of 5+ is guided by the following five principles:

  1. BEING LEADERS in the community;

  2. BUILDING a collective infrastructure;

  3. SECURING a foundation for English-language theatre in Montréal;

  4. PROMOTING exchange and cooperation between artists;

  5. EXPERIMENTING with new technologies.
